Albert Ellis talks with young Ken who is being bullied and teased at school by his classmates. Ellis explains to the boy that he has control of his own emotions and reactions. Ellis indirectly emphasizes to Ken the importance of using rational-emotive imagery.
Ellis believes words can only hurt people if they believe they are terrible and will hurt them psychologically. Using logical thinking, Ken is able to overcome the emotional response he has to being bullied. Ken now believes he does not have to condemn himself just because his classmates condemn him.
Thomas W. Allen and Ellis discuss the psychological methods behind the therapy session Ellis just conducted with young Ken. Ellis reveals he had used rational emotive therapy techniques during this session. Ellis explains if he had more time to work with Ken, he would have used additional psychological techniques in order to help the young man cope with the effects of school bullies.
